The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Borno Command said on Tuesday that its personnel intercepted two female suicide bombers.
They had tried to ram into motorists at the NNPC Mega Station along Damboa Road, Maiduguri.
The Commandant of the corps, Ibrahim Abdullahi, told newsmen in Maiduguri that the incident occurred at about 6.45 a.m.
“Our personnel at the NNPC station intercepted two female suicide bombers, who were targeting motorists on the long queue at the NNPC mega petrol station at about 6.45 a.m.
“One of the bombers got scared and threw her bomb and was instantly arrested.
“The other one started running after people with her explosive but luckily, she was shot on the leg by our personnel after he chased her to a safe place.
“We have deployed our Anti-Bomb Squad to the area,” Abdullahi said.
The commandant said that the few insurgents remaining were looking for soft targets where they could cause havoc.
He appealed to all residents in Borno to be on alert and vigilant.
